The CData JDBC Driver for Excel Services integrates Excel Services data with wizards and analytics in IDEs like Aqua Data Studio. This article shows how to connect to Excel Services data through the connection manager and execute queries.

Create a JDBC Data Source

You can use the connection manager to define connection properties and save them in a new JDBC data source. The Excel Services data source can then be accessed from Aqua Data Studio tools.

  1. In Aqua Data Studio, select Register Server from the Servers menu.
  2. In the Register Server form, select the 'Generic - JDBC' connection.
  3. Enter the following JDBC connection properties:
    • Name: Enter a name for the data source; for example, Excel Services.
    • Driver Location: Click the Browse button and select the cdata.jdbc.excelservices.jar file, located in the lib subfolder of the installation directory.
    • Driver: Enter the Driver's class name, cdata.jdbc.excelservices.ExcelServicesDriver.
    • URL: Enter the JDBC URL, which starts with jdbc:excelservices: and is followed by a semicolon-separated list of connection properties. You will find information on the required connection string options in the help documentation. A typical JDBC URL is below:

      jdbc:excelservices:URL=https://myorg.sharepoint.com;User=admin@myorg.onmicrosoft.com;Password=password;File=Book1.xlsx;
  4. The URL, User, and Password properties, under the Authentication section, must be set to valid credentials for SharePoint Online, SharePoint 2010, or SharePoint 2013. Additionally, the Library property must be set to a valid SharePoint Document Library and the File property must be set to a valid .xlsx file in the indicated Library.
